Cons
"The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.""Some pre-packaged connectors for integration with various applications, such as SaaS offerings, would be a useful addition.""IBM DataPower Gateway is quite big for smaller organizations, looking at different types of clients who are virtually assisted in this, I would say it's not really a good product for smaller firms.""Traceability could be improved, especially for business operations. The traceability of the transactions could be an improvement point for DataPower to work on. It would be better if they provided JSON support. JSON protocol data has changed format. It started performing internal transformation to JSONx. This might be an additional complexity.""Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement.""Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""The two biggest issues of this solution are the complexity and the maintenance procedures.""In the next release, I would like to see the product price reduced. It should be cheaper."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The appliance is a bit on the expensive side for the workloads that are not too high.""The licensing cost is very expensive.""The cost of this product varies from customer to customer and the relationship with IBM, including how many offerings from IBM are already being used.""It's expensive when you compare it with others.""IBM DataPower Gateway is quite expensive to get resources to work on this product. If the price could be cheaper, I think that will make it a little bit better and easily accessible to smaller clients. Then it could compete with other solutions that are available in the market. There's a whole lot of other solutions available that work well and are cheaper than IBM's products.""As far as I know, they have a perpetual license for this product. They are paying perpetual fees rather than an annual subscription or annual pricing."
